‘I’m hungry for something decadent!’: readers on 12 restaurants they have missed most
In England, dining out is back on the menu. But where to go first? Guardian readers on the brilliant local eateries they’re yearning to get back to – and the dish they will eat firstThere is an Italian restaurant in Cheam, Surrey, called Mimi E Coco. It’s not fancy, but it’s not quite a 90s trattoria; there’s no sweet trolley, but they do like to brown off the creme brulee in front of you. Any night of the week you will see regulars and it’s perfect for family celebrations, a romantic meal or just pasta and a bottle of red when the trains have been delayed on the homeward commute. The food is consistent, no fancy tricks and always a good portion. I’ll be ordering the gambas alla Coco: massive butterflied prawns swimming in butter sauce, served up with a rice bombe. I will also order a portion of fries, which are to die for. A soft creamy burrata to start, a slice of cassata to finish and a bottle of nero d’avola.
